We spoke with Henry about starting and managing her various businesses.
What inspired you to start these various businesses?
With the adult daycare facility, my mom and I are like co-owners. She’s doing the day-to-day functions. She’s a phenomenal woman. I always wanted to help my community, especially with mental health, even if it’s just allowing our clients to have a little break from the day-to-day actions they have to do. It’s a lot of pressure having to take care of mentally challenged and elderly people. My mom talked me into pursuing trucking. When I first got into the business, it was horrible and I had the worst experience ever. It molded me to be able to be in a position where I am today. People automatically think that if you are a pretty girl or if you are shaped a certain [way] that you’re supposed to be doing certain things and I always wanted to break that norm.
